  1. Nowadays folk perhaps move house more often than they did a few decades ago. When I think of my childhood we knew everyone on our section of the road, and all our neighbours had lived there a long time, some still do. Folk didn't seem to move house so often. But for many reasons folk now seem to move house more frequently, which may go towards explaining the loss of any community spirit? Also, most couples work full time so will be out all day, and when they get home they just want to close their door to the world, which is understandable. Previously if the wives stayed at home they would

  2. Station building was knocked down a few years ago. After the railway closed it was used as a props supply warehouse, they hired out stuff for filming. There were rumours that the building was taken down by someone who was going to rebuild it somewhere locally, but that doesn't seem to have happened. Nigel L

Built by the Vulcan Foundry to works number 5084, in 1944, Austerity Class WD/8, No.90647, of Frodingham Shed (No.36C), approaches Beighton Station Signal Box and Level Crossing from the direction of Holbrook Colliery Sidings Signal Box, in 1964. The opposite direction from the image posted above. Holbrook Colliery Sidings Signal Box just visible behind the train.

  6. I have just found this thread, more than a year later. I went to Gleadless County and remember being in Mrs Bell’s class in the infants and, I think, Miss Anderson’s. In the juniors I had Mr Slater, J1, Miss Parkin, J2, and Mr Iosson for J3 and 4, in the huts. He liked to grow coleus plants in the greenhouse. I think we did a bit plant nurturing too.

  7. Agreed. Always good to see photos of my part of town, being born & raised near Townend. Not that I remember what Gleadless Road used to look like around the Heeley & Sheffield, but some of the other shots are familiar to me. The postmaster in the 1960s was Artie Elliott. The library at Manor Top was Manor Library. Gleadless Library is on White Lane. It used to look like this, but that building has been replaced. Glad to see it is still open, though. It was at Gleadless Library that my love of books and reading was born. Visits to my grandfather who lived in C
